Angular & Firebase Tutorial

I’m following the Angular 5 and Firebase tutorial found here

Here are some things I notice as of today.

I’m getting an error of “Cannot find namespace ‘firebase'”. Not sure why but downgrading firebase back to 4.8.0 from 4.8.1 fixes this. I’m also getting the error “BrowserslistError: Unknown browser major” and downgrading to Bootstrap@4.0.0-beta.2 instead of beta 3 works. That little fix was posted only 3 hours before I started the tutorial. It’s great that new versions are coming out all the time but it’s hard for tutorials to keep up with breaking changes. Finally, I had to use Realtime Database instead of Cloud Firestore.

Now to create my own app using a similar method, without following the tutorial!
